Skurvi -Till We Die
If you're unfamiliar with today's band and want some sort of idea as to the type of music that Skurvi play I'll just quickly paraphrase a review from p4th radio's Eagle Spits that's on their Facebook page : "if Skurvi were a disorder they would be Hyper-mania, fast, full on and in your face. Fast paced, catchy, edgy......" Other reviews mention "youthful zest" "pogoing epileptic mentalists" "boundless energy" and "infectious confidence." I think you probably have some idea what the song at the bottom of the page is going to sound like so now for some info.
Skurvi worship at the temple of old school, they list amongst their influences the likes of fellow Brighton punks Peter And The Test Tube Babies as well as Cock Sparrer and SLF. Don't be fooled into thinking that they're a tired old cliche pedalling out a substandard variant of better music from distant times, these boys are a booze fuelled punk rock juggernaut that sound remarkably fresh in a genre that's celebrating it's 40th birthday.
The line up features Jimmy Skurvi (lead vocals), Perry-Scope (guitar/backing vocals), Liam (bass/backing vocals) and Craig (drums). They got together in 2008 and released the Pints Half Full ep in 2014. Earlier this year they released their debut album, Get 'Em In, on STP Records and you can check out several of the tracks here : https://skurvi.bandcamp.com/album/get-em-in
They've been busy touring in support of the album and on November 13th (my birthday!) they'll be supporting the U.K. Subs in Lewes, East Sussex.
From the album, this is Till We Die.....
